Lenovo one if you want to game, since it has a much better CPU and cooling system. Dell's Inspiron laptops are awfully overheated while playing games, which lead to less durability. Personally had a Lenovo y550 with discrete VGA ( gt 240m ) and the temp was quite OK during gaming.

Not to mention that Dell Inspiron has a fingerprint-magnet surface :pfff:

Dell one doesn't have a better GPU. GT630m and HD7670 are equals in terms of performance ( you can check for that on notebookcheck ), and even if Dell one has a better GPU, it's not worth trading durability for :)

i can't find the comparison but i found this "the 7670M positions itself in our tests slightly above the GeForce GT 630M"

on Passmark i found that the HD7670 scored 1173 and the GT630M scored 756

Yes, 7670m is about 5% better than 630m, but Dell one also has a 30% worse CPU ( that "up to 2.6ghz" from Dell's advertise is unrealistic anyway, since that CPU's clock will only boost to 2.6ghz when only 1 core is used, but Windows will never allow just 1 core to run at a time ). And Passmark is an old outdated software that is not good for comparison anymore.

I got a Samsung Series 3, comes with an A8 4500m and the 7670m.
If you want a game performance, I run Battlefield 3 in windowed mode on windows 8 at about 30-45 FPS, on Low Graphics Preset. Although, the performance has gone to the dogs since going back to Windows 7.
As a Laptop, Lenovo has slightly suprior builds and the Driver Support is good (Got 3 Lenovo Lappys in the family, 1 Thinkpad and 2 Ideapads, and a ThinkPad Tablet 1.) Not so sure about Dell, but personally I don't enjoy the astetic looks of the Dell laptop ranges. To boxy and generic for my liking.

Anyway, there were my 2 cents worth.
